‘The Walking Dead’ Star Jeffrey Dean Morgan Shows Support for the Wounded Warrior Project

Jeffrey Dean Morgan may play The Walking Dead universe’s biggest baddie on television however, off screen, he is certainly a class act.

Morgan attended Walker Stalker Con Atlanta this past weekend, and fans noticed one particular accessory which the actor had with him.  No, it wasn’t Negan’s barbed wire covered bat Lucille, though there were plenty replicas that passed through his autograph line.  Morgan wore a very special hat on Sunday supporting the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Wounded Warrior Project is an amazing non-profit organization which, according to their website, “serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families.”

Their vision is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history by raising awareness, helping injured service members and providing programs and services to meet their needs.

Morgan clearly supports this incredible cause, as he was also seen sporting the Wounded Warrior hat earlier in October during The Walking Dead panel at New York Comic Con.

This small gesture of support certainly proves that, unlike his slugger-swinging character, Morgan has a caring and compassionate heart.
